Gujarat Lions' pacer Andrew Tye had a debut to remember as he cleans up Ankit Sharma, Manoj Tiwary and Shardul Thakur in his final over to become the thirteenth bowler in Indian Premier League's (IPL) history to claim a hat-trick. Sharma and Tiwary were caught whereas Shardul was clean bowled by Tye's yorker. He ended up with five wickets which is also the first five-for in the tenth edition of the league.
Earlier in the day, Samuel Badree made his debut playing for the Royal Challengers Bangalore against Mumbai Indians and it took him just ten balls to write his name in the history books. The West Indian spinner became just the twelfth bowler in IPL's history to claim a hat-trick.
Badree, who was brought into the team by captain Virat Kohli sent Parthiv Patel packing after the wicketkeeper-batsman hit a flighted delivery straight into the hands of Chris Gayle at cover. In the very next ball, Mitchell McClenaghan who walked in to replace Parthiv hit a full toss straight down long on's tail. Badree's third victim was Mumbai's skipper Rohit Sharma who crossed over as McCelnaghan was holed out in the deep. Rohit played down the wrong line as Badree's straight-one crashed into Rohit's stumps.
Tye's hat-trick was the sixteenth hat-trick in IPL history, here is a look at all the previous ones in the league.

Batsmen dismissed - Sourav Ganguly, Debabrata Das, David Hussey

Batsmen dismissed - Abhishek Nayar, Harbhajan Singh, JP Duminy
Rohit Sharma who is well-known for him exploits with the bat, but few recognised his ability with the ball until Adam Gilchrist handed him the ball in an attempt to destabilise the Mumbai Indians' batting line-up.

Yuvraj Singh, Kings XI Punjab v Deccan Chargers, IPL 2009
Batsmen dismissed - Herschelle Gibbs, Andrew Symonds, Venugopal Rao

Praveen Kumar, Royal Challengers Bangalore v Royals, IPL 2010
Batsmen dismissed- Damien Martyn, Sumit Narwal, Paras Dogra
Pravin Kumar is quite unplayable when on song and Rajasthan Royals found out exactly that when they came at the wrong end of his swinging ball. Kumar's hat-trick in 2010 meant the Royals were bowled out for paltry 92.

He then snapped Robin Uthappa on the first ball of his second over to complete a hattrick.
Sunil Narine, Kolkata Knight Riders v Kings XI Punjab, IPL 2013
Batsmen dismissed - David Hussey, Azhar Mahmood, Gurkeerat Singh

Amit Mishra, Sunrisers Hyderabad v Pune Warriors, IPL 2013
Batsmen dismissed - Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Rahul Sharma, Ashok Dinda

Pravin Tambe, Rajasthan Royals v Kolkata Knight Riders, IPL 2014
Batsmen dismissed - Manish Pandey, Yusuf Pathan, Ryan ten Doeschate
